Indeed Sir! PING is KING! Tried the Glide Stealth 2.0 wedges today too and...OMG! Those will be my next fitting...! :rolleyes: Then off to Iron land...

I got to check out the SM7's alongside the Glide 2.0 Stealth. Couldn't hit them. But I like PING's Black better. Sat nice on the deck too.

OK Spies! Peer pressure got the best of me...well...not really, but yeah, mostly...

 

It didn't help that MGS's Most Wanted driver for 2018 is the G400 and that Sluggo, yungkory & Ole Grey (among many others) are really giving sparkling reviews on their G400 drivers! Dang guys, I hear ya...and so did my wallet. Speaking of hearing, this club sounds wayyyyyyy better than my G-series tin can BS...!

Demo'ed this baby with PING just today. Played a bit with both the std G400 & also the MAX, but this G400 "SFT" won out while being equipped with PING's Alta CB shaft in stiff-flex and standard diameter (white) Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip. This is a BIG difference coming from a regular-flex shaft and a MCC +4 grip!

 

The MAX unfortunately just felt too "heavy" for me and couldn't hook up with it despite several shaft changes. This final set-up allowed me to center-punch more shots, more often and also allows me the confidence to "un-cork" on it and hit the snot out of it without fear that it'll end up way right. Therefore my distance has improved...Happy boy! :)

 

Also note that my signature & pic have both been updated to reflect changes, and yes...YES it is going in the bag IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!

Don't know if I mentioned them a week or so ago, but I picked up a G400 LST and put a Paderson IMRT 860 Tour in X in it. Long, high bombs in the one session I've had with it.

 

Picked up a Scotty patchwork hybrid cover earlier this evening too

I honestly need to get fitted for a new driver. But its such a pain to spend a whole day driving a state or 2 over to probably spend 500-700 on a new driver/fitting. The M2 spins and launches way too high even on 8.5* and the misses with the SLDR suck.

The new Rogue SZ has seriously caught my eye though...

 

I know you bagged that thing for forever. Must've been tough retiring her.

Check out the Try Before You Buy program at Global Golf. Other online retailers may also offer similar programs, not sure.

No photo to show, but it's not hard to find an image online if you want to see one. Recently purchased a Ping G LS Tec in 9* (set to 9.6*) with the Ping Tour 65 shaft in stiff flex. Still debating if I actually like it better than my Vapor Pro which has been really good to me. Looking for a little more distance as the Vapor does seem to struggle producing ball speed, but I need to get it out on the course and maybe even do a comparison with Flight Scope.

Had a bunch of shop credit for a club in the area from the tournament I won last year and then again this year.  Got a few dozen ProV1x balls and about 10 Titleist Players gloves.  Could find anything else that I needed to use up the credit.

I have the same grip on one of my putters. Really like the size. Also, nice pickup on the Vices. Those are good balls!

Can you accidentally win an item on eBay?  If so, then I accidentally landed a 2018 M3 with the White Tensei X-Stiff shaft.

 

If not, then I deliberately scored an awesome deal on the same club.  Should come tomorrow.  Might need to take PTO to ensure receipt.

I accidentally won two identical 3 woods. That was the day I realized it is, indeed, possible to win auctions on eBay.

I have a ...concern.

I just received my Iron set from Club Champion tonight. I was fit for Mizuno JPX 900 Forged with Steelfiber I95 S. (Exactly the Iron I wanted... it worked out).

The issue (which may be nothing to give a second thought to) is the serial numbers do not match throughout the set. All match with the exception of the 6 iron and 9 iron (those match each other BUT not the rest of the set).

Is this unusual or cause for concern?

If it is...why?

I look forward to your responses.

Thanks

Don

Sold some more stuff on eBay and decided to reward myself with a Callaway X2Hot 3 Deep with an Aldila Tour Green shaft. I really only use my 3 wood as an off the tee club so I want to see how this works out. I hit 5 wood (F6 Baffler with deep face) off all the par 4's today and shot even par so hoping the 3 Deep can weasel into the bag as well.

If it matters to you, then I guess it's important. I didn't even know each iron had the serial on them, I always thought it was just the 6i, but I checked my irons and sure enough, they're all engraved. Maybe they combined 2 sets that they had in stock to make your order?

Perhaps due to weight differences in the heads due to OEM tolerances they had to change out some of the heads. If you are concerned a simple phone call should get you the answer
